Scheldeprijs Women 2022 overview
Defending champion Lorena Wiebes of Team DSM won the Scheldeprijs women’s race for a second consecutive year on Wednesday in Schoten. She sprinted to the line well clear of 19 other riders, Chiara Consonni (Valcar-Travel & Service) taking second place and Rachele Barbieri (Liv Racing Xstra) in third.
It was the 40th career victory for Wiebes, and her fourth time on the top step of the podium in a one-day race this season, following wins at the GP Oetingen, Ronde van Drenthe, and Nokere Koerse.
The route for this year's Scheldeprijs was 138 kilometres that started and finished in Schoten, and offered three finishing circuits of 17km each. It is the only event on Flanders Classics’ spring calendar that remains at a 1.1-level, which allows second-tier women’s teams to secure spots on the starting line.
Two Continental riders were involved in the early breakaway that included Megan Armitage (IBCT), Abi Smith (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) and Simone Boilard (St Michel-Auber93). The breakaway made it onto the local circuits but the threesome were caught with 25km to go as Team DSM set a quick pace for their sprinter and defending champion.
